New issue (No.7) about invisible design is out

by Peter Biľak

Sometimes design is as much about the unseen as the seen.

The seventh issue of WTW also strives to probe beyond the visible aspect of design. We look at the invisible principles that shaped San Francisco’s informal but highly effective social commuting system, which has been used by hundreds of thousands of people since its start in the 1970s. We also look at systems that, conversely, aim to make the invisible visible, such as those documented in two pieces about innovative postal addressing in areas which the regular post considered inaccessible. The absence of objects is the subject of a story from Rwanda, one of the first countries to ban plastic bags, and thus pioneering effective environmental protection and sustainable use of resources.
